The LT1787 high side current sense amplifier, which provides an easy-to-use method of sensing current with 12-bit resolution for a multiplicity of application areas, is described.
Current sense amplifier
The LT1787 high side current sense amplifier provides a precision measurement of current into or out of a power source. The part generates an output voltage that is directly proportional to the current flowing through an external current sense resistor. With a miniscule 40μV (typical) input offset voltage, the LT1787 has a better than 12-bit, zero-cross accurate dynamic range at 250mV full-scale ...
